The stakes are higher than ever
As part of their anti-money laundering programs, banks must conduct a large number of Customer Due Diligence (CDD) checks when going into business with new customers and on a regular basis. In cases when higher-risk customers are involved, Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) procedures must take place— for example, if a customer in question might be a Politically Exposed Person (PEP), or there are suspicious transactions.
In addition to the ongoing fears of potential damage to a bank’s reputation and continuously evolving threats, poorly executed AML operations create a number of other challenges:
Rising operational costs
Most AML activities require significant manual effort, making them inefficient and difficult to scale. In 2018, it cost the U.S. financial services industry $25.3B to manage AML.
Enforcement actions related to AML have been on the rise — up to about $6.2B in 2018.
Poor customer experiences
Compliance staff must have multiple touchpoints with a customer to gather and verify information, which means a longer deal cycle that might lead to customer churn.
Opportunity cost of losing new business
While a bank is under a potential compliance investigation, its activities might be suspended.
